Suffering with severe stomach ache


Hi everyone, this is my first pregnancy so not sure what to expect. I'm 6 weeks 5 days pregnant and for this last week I have started suffering with period like pains that come and go and struggling to pass a bowel movement. I also sometimes get bloated and gassy. Been to the doctors to get checked out and they said everything is fine. I'm assuming this is to do with the fact my digestion slowing down. Has anyone else suffered with this and if so what natural remedies have you tried that have alleviated it. Any advice would be appreciated as this causing me to already have lots of time off work.
